Saudi Arabia currently offers some of the best reasons to invest: - Unparalleled land and sea lane access, with close links to Europe, Africa, South and East Asia - Substantial cost advantages due to the low domestic cost of energy - Large-scale, mutually reinforcing investments in road, rail, sea, and aerial transportation - Strong domestic growth, supported by massive capital spending and rising personal wealth - A highly stable, competitive and increasingly liberal business environment
Numerous investment opportunities exist within the Transportation & Logistics Sector between the Base Economy & Economic Cities and an overall investment of US$100 investment is anticipated over the next 10 years.
Now is an opportune time for the Transport & Logistics industry in the Kingdom, and for those involved to be able to meet and network at SAUDI TRANSTEC.
